Christian Löffler and Fejká present new single ‘Fjäll’
Like the environment itself, the new track by Christian Löffler and Fejká conjures openness and space with atmospheric field recordings and beats that roll out indefinitely. Fjäll is the Old Norse word for a fell, a high and barren geographical feature common throughout Northern Europe. Listeners are instantly transported to a peaceful realm of seclusion by the gentle synth washes and hushed voices. When Christian Löffler and Fejká collaborate on Fjäll, it is impossible to tell where one of their contributions ends and the other begins, resulting in a completely natural and intensely emotional experience.
Fejká and Christian Löffler, both German artists, share many characteristics. Not only do they both produce emotionally charged electronic music that infuses a sense of longing and nostalgia into normally hard electronica, but they are also highly influenced by the abounding natural beauty of their respective environments—the Black Forest and the Baltic Sea coast. Because of their similar musical tastes, Christian Löffler requested Fejká to become a member of the Ki Records family. Since then they have shared the stage on numerous occasions, playing tours and headlining festivals. The song Fjäll, which they collaborated on, is the most recent evidence of their kinship and the compatibility of their soundscapes.
Christian Löffler Fejká new song ‘Fjäll’ and its meaning
The creators’ frequent communication and custom of providing constructive criticism for one another’s work gave rise to Fjäll. Fejká added fun build-ups and drops to Löffler’s atmospheric textures after getting an initial demo of the song from the producer.
I had the feeling that the new tracks I added gave the song something rhythmic and hypnotic and that our two palettes flowed perfectly together. When I sent Christian my changed version without any expectations, he immediately wrote back to me that he was celebrating the new part and thus an unplanned collaboration was born. – Fejká
The word “fell” in Old Norse refers to a tall, desolate terrain feature that is most frequently encountered in Scandinavia and Northern European nations like Iceland and Scotland.

Listeners are instantly transported to a peaceful realm of seclusion by the gentle synth washes and hushed voices. On Fjäll, Fejká and Löffler’s synergy is so strong that it’s difficult to tell where one of their contributions ends and the other one begins, resulting in a completely natural and intensely emotional experience.
